How do I setup a backup job in Yosemite Server Backup that always uses the media available in the device?

Solution #00004016

 

Scope:

Yosemite Server Backup, version 8.0 or higher.

 

Answer:

This solution details the steps to create a five day backup schedule, Monday through Friday, that will occur automatically. Warning: This backup job is not media aware, so whatever tape is in the drive will be overwritten, even if it is the incorrect tape.

If a new tape, or a tape that was previously used with another backup software is inserted into the device, it may require a manual format before Yosemite Server Backup can use the tape. This is done as a safety precaution, to prevent an accidental overwrite of viable backup data.
